York is a small walled city situated at the middle of the busy railway route from Edinburgh to London. The city itself is very small and can be covered on foot twice in a day. That is what we did when we got there. Here are some pictures of the streets of York.
Hartleys - the Best Sandwich Shop in York (As written on a board outside the shop). No doubt, it is the cutest though.
Some dilapidated old ruins near the Museum Gardens. A lot of Ghost walks are organized here.
The street leading towards the York Minster. See how empty they are. The entire population of York in 2007 was less than 2 Lakh people.
Beautiful building enroute to the York Minster. On closer inspection, it turned out to be Grays Solicitors. Not too exciting.
St. Wilfrid's Church opposite Gray's Solicitors. The construction of the Church was completed in 1864 costing around £10,000 - a little less than the tution fees for my MA.
The York Minster Cathedral. It took us a while to locate the main entrance of this huge building.
St. Michael le Belfrey Church besides the York Minster. A lot of these buidlings have been standing since the medieval times.
The sign for the Ye Olde Starre Inn across stonegate - the inn has been standing since the English Civil Wars in the mid-17th Century. The building itself (not in this picture) was once used as a hospital and mortuary. No wonder several ghosts haunt the premises.
Trade Secret Salon near Coppergate. This was close to the Jorvik Viking Centre.
West Cornwall Pasty Co. at the Coppergate Shopping Centre. Food abounds at every corner in York. Never make the mistake of eating too much on an outing. You will end up feeling wretched.
York at night with brilliant moon high up in the sky. Well, it will not be fair to call it night though since it was barely 4:30 in the evening.
The York city wall - more miles of this wall are intact as compared to the other cities in England.
